U Stop Fina Set to go Before City Council Again
U Stop Fina, a neighborhood convenience store near Sunset High School, will go before the City Council on Wednesday in another attempt to secure a permit to sell alcohol.
Both the City Plan Commission and city staff recommend approval for the permit, but the store’s request has been a hot topic among residents in the neighborhood. Parents have spoken out saying alcohol does not need to be sold so close to a high school, and on the other side of the fence, regular customers have rallied to support the owner.
The request went before the City Council on Jan. 9, but it was taken under advisement and held for another day. As of now, a decision is scheduled for Wednesday.
What say you? Are you planning on attending Wednesday’s meeting to make sure your side is represented? If so, the public hearing starts at 1 p.m. at City Hall.
